Is OK with who?

As mentioned in your other thread... new pipe should be IN THE WALL.
Once out of the wall (like under the sink) sure add a tee (and valves).

But if your plan is to drill through the floor into the bottom of the cabinet...
is probably not ok.

Like Tarheel said...put it in the wall.

Don't be afraid to cut out a section of drywall to put the pipe in....it will look a whole lot better and be better protected.

One of the problems of running a pipe up through the floor and into a cabinet is that there is nothing to support the pipe...subject to bending...which leads to breaking....which leads to leaks....none of which are good.

We pipe into cabinet bases often. How else would you do an island for example? Heck, it's getting common to see risers for toilets through the floor.
Once you're stubbed in put on a tee and 2 valves- 1 for sink and 1 for DW

Ok thanks-- in this case there is no way to put it in the wall 100 yr old house
the walls are actually just about onto of a stone foundation so you can't run anything thru them from below with major hassle.

So running pipe up from under is the only practical way and any plumber in this area would do that. My other sinks are just like that from years ago.

Love to make it look better but no can do...
